Why Cahners & Donahue Associates?
We are different from most consultants you may meet.
We have been, and continue to be, non-profit professionals, board members, board chairs, and active volunteers. This gives us a unique perspective, allowing us to understand better the needs of our clients.
We take the time to understand your mission, your priorities, and your organization’s culture.
We can counsel, guide, and work with you “in the trenches.”
We are creative problem solvers, willing to explore and entertain alternative approaches to the challenges and opportunities facing our clients.
C&D’s knowledge, skills, and gentle approach made the process of starting and growing our board not only doable, but also fun. As a result of working with C&D, we created a 10-member board, organized a successful fundraising event, developed a promotional packet, and created a full time executive director position. C&D helped us gain confidence working with our board of directors and running our organization in general.
